Oh, Harvey!

Officer Brown,

you're my hero.

Oh, please, miss.

It was nothing. Oh, geez...

All in a day's work, ma'am.

Any cop woulda done the same.

Brain? Yech.


Having another hero cop dream,

Uncle John?

Every time I close my eyes.

How was school?


Don't forget:
Tomorrow's the day parents

come and talk about their careers.

Oh. Well, I might have to work.

You want me to ask off?

Oh, no. That's okay.

Parents coming to school...

whose idea was that anyway?

- But if it's important to you, Penny...

- Did the letter come?

Letter? Uh, gee, well...

What letter?

I don't... Oh, yes.

They said two years as a security guard

isn't enough experience to be a cop.

- Uncle John, I'm sorry.

- Me too.

Well, I can still secure and protect.

I just think I could do

so much more good as a cop.

Hey, wait a minute.

Tomorrow's your day off.

Oh, well...


Look, I know that

Nicole's dad is a lawyer,

and Kim's dad is a dentist,

and I just didn't want

to embarrass you with your friends.

If I only had that badge.

Uncle John, it's not the badge,

it's the heart behind it.

I'm very proud of you.


Fingers crossed.

This chip is gonna make

the whole Gadget project work.

- Dad, concentrate. Try to move the foot.

- [Sighs]


All right. Kick the ball.


Nothin'. I'm hungry.

Okay, all right. I'll go get us

some dinner. But then we keep going.

- Yeah.

- Okay. I'll call the guardhouse...

so they don't search

the deliver guy again.

Hello, Antonio's? Yeah, it's Brenda.

No, foot's still not moving.

- Dad, keep thinking about

that foot. Yep, the usual.

- Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.

## [Humming]

## [Continues Humming]

- [Gasping] Dad.

- Hmm? What?

[Brenda Stammers]

Tap your foot again.

- What?

- Huh.

That's weird.

Wh-What were you thinking about?

I was thinking about how much

you remind me of your mother.


Wait a second.

Wait a second!

That's it! It's animated

by will, not by thought.

By your heart, not your head!


- Come on, try it again. Do it again!

- All right.



We did it! We moved the foot!

- [Woman] Jack, queen...

- [John Whistles]


Brenda Bradford... she's so beautiful.

- Wowser.

- [Woman]

Black eight on the red nine...

- What?

- Oh, oh, nothin'.

I was just talkin' to myself.

Thelma, how do I look?

Like a geek from Kansas

who became a security guard.

- [Cat Meowing]

- [Man] Brenda Bradford.

Well, good evening, young lady.

It's been a while. [Chuckles]

- Four, three, two, one, zero.

- ## [Brenda Humming]

- [Watch Beeps]

- Go.

- Dr Bradford.

- Yes?

- Hi.

- Hi.

- I borrowed a book from your dad.

- You did?

- Power Learning Through Speed Study.

- Oh.

It took me forever

to get through it.

But I really think

it's gonna pay off, though.

I just applied

to the Riverton police force.

- Yeah?

- It's what I've always wanted to do.

- Help people, that is.

- Um, I gotta...

Dr Bradford is out

of the lab and we can go in.

Sikes, release the remote-control van.

[Electronic Beeping]

- Nice stars.

- Yeah? Which ones?

I just meant the whole...

- All of'em.

- Oh, I thought you meant

a specific cluster.

I always take everything

so literally.

- So do I.

- Yeah?

I forgot my keys.

- Oh.

- [Chuckles]

- I'm... Okay. Night.

- Sorry. Good night, now.

[Sighs] Well, I'll just stay here,

then, and, uh, secure the parking lot.

[Tyres Screeching]

Concentrate, you twit!

Hey, that guy's speeding.

Ten miles an hour

in the parking lot, buddy!

- No-no-no-no, straight ahead!

No, left!

- Bad cat. Bad cat.

Left, Sikes, turn!

- What was that?

- We have an intruder

on the premises... a black van.

- Where?

- Try that big hole in the wall!



- Huh?

- Hello, Artemus. I'll take that.

Oh, no, wait.

No, no, no, no!

- Now, just a moment... [Gasps]

- Arrivederci, Professor.

Uh-oh! Someone's gonna

blame the old lady.

Sniffy, let's go.


Dr Bradford, I won't rest until

lfind whoever's responsible.

Justice will be served.

Brown, where are you going?

- To catch the bad guys!

Stand back, Thelma!

- This isn't going to end well.

- You're not on duty, Brown!

- I'm always on duty!



[Chattering, Yelling]

[Horn Honking]

Oh, no. We're being chased

by the hatchback squad.


Hey, I have a hatchback.

Ooh. Oh!
